Why should voters elect you?
"As a father, a lawyer and an education advocate, I understand the issues, and I want every child to receive the best educational opportunities available."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"Maintaining a high quality educational system, one in which every student is challenged and performs to their highest potential, in an era of shrinking resources without impacting the progress made toward providing equal opportunities for the advancement of all students. This requires finding funding for new programs aimed at improving academic performance, such as full- day kindergarten; making investment in our facilities, both new construction to alleviate crowding and the renovation of older facilities; and incorporating technological improvements into the instructional process. This will require strong leadership with everyone pulling together, including parents, the Department of Education and the board."
